RAF Police Associates

This website is nothing to do with the organisation known as the RAF Police Association although I am currently a member. It may feature Association members on its pages and is used by a large number of RAF Police Association members in preference to the new RAF Police Association website purchased at great cost using the members' money without their prior approval. 

Over 600 members do not have computer access but have to share the cost of the new website, a sum over £2500. (actual figure unknown).

And even those with internet access weren't asked if they wanted to spend this money.  

All started with a lie by the treasurer that I was retiring as the webmaster that has never been acknowledged.  

This led him to get his heart's desire - his own website at members expense and it can be shown that nothing has been right since he joined the Association as a "Johnny come lately"

Because of the complete lack of any apology to the members from those involved in this debacle, my membership will lapse at the end of the year as membership of the Association is not worth £12.50 a year, £16.50 if you don't have a computer and you want Provost Parades, and absolutely nothing has changed from when 3 of us were suspended for raising our concerns.  Membership of the RMPA is £15 for a lifetime membership!

The same people are still in power along with their supporters and although they technically did not break the Association's rules, they acted in a totally immoral and unethical way and refuse to admit it and as a result ripped the heart out of the Association.  

In addition it continued in the Griff magazine, both last year and this year where there have been lies and abuse about the three of us, especially me and the Association seem perfectly happy to publish this libel without any reprimand to individuals.

 Changes to the rules are "slipped" in without approval so there is no change in the way it is being run. 

And even motions at the AGM are subject to censorship and comment from the Chairman.

And now even what can be worn on parade has changed with simply the say-so of 3 people and no discussion with anyone else. And yet another Chairman thinks he's god - that's 4 on the trot now - who refuses to admit he has done anything wrong. 

I have today cancelled my standing order as I have found that nothing has been learnt over the last couple of years. Where my original complaint was that various officers were spending the members money without consulting them I have just found that the Chairman and the Treasurer have now recently spent £700 on 50 brassards without even the approval at the Executive Council!

As a founder member, LVP and former trustee it is a shame a few members have lost the way from what we set up the Association to be all those years ago.  A crying shame.

This website is provided, and has been provided by me personally for 20 years, as a link for RAF Police Association members, serving and past members of the RAF Police and Provost branch and associated trades and groups as well as for non RAF personnel to maintain contact and provide a service.

It is the site formally known as the RAF Police Association website.

Alan Rusling Memorial Award

The beauty of the Suns Energy Solar Panel Funding better than free solar panel scheme is that you can obtain solar panels and then use the government incentive known as the Feed-In-Tariff to fund the installation.

With this incentive, it is possible to achieve combined earnings & savings in excess of £30,000 over 20 years.

Applying now will enable you to lock in your Feed-In-Tariff rate which will increase over time with the rate of inflation. The government funding available for renewable energies such as solar is limited and will soon run out.

TO SECURE YOUR FEED-IN-TARIFF AND EARN TAX FREE INCOME AS WELL AS GENERATING FREE ELECTRICITY - 

Contact the Webmaster on webmaster@rafpa.com who will pass on your details to arrange a free no obligation survey by your local energy assessor
